For most men spending time on finding really great nightwear is not high on the list compared to the rest of their wardrobe. The common opinion is that nightwear really doesn’t matter because no-one really can see what you are wearing when you are asleep. In addition to this, men’s nightwear is not considered a fashionable item as we have long suffered the matching trouser and jacket.
Over the past 15 years though the major designer brands have begun to offer fashionable nightwear, which hints at a demand for such a product from men. This article poses the question whether it is worth making an effort with your nightwear, and particularly ‘does your nightwear need to look good?’
Before we decide whether men should wear fashionable nightwear, we need to make sure that men’s nightwear can look good? After all, how cool can pyjamas look? For many years the standard outfit has been the matching trouser and jacket, which looks like men are going to sleep in a rather untidy suit. It looks too stiff and has become old fashioned.
Whilst this look may suit the older gentleman, is there anything for the more fashion conscious man who is too old for his jim-jams? The answer is clearly yes, with brands like Calvin Klein and Emporio Armani offering pyjama trouser and t-shirts with great designs and flattering cut. They have managed to create comfortable sleeping attire without being too baggy, in great patterns and colours.
Although there is lots of great looking nightwear for men, do we need to look good in bed? What’s the point if no-one sees us? The desire to look good is based on the idea that we want to impress others, and attract the opposite sex. There is obvious truth in this statement, and so it’s a good idea to look good for your partner or wife in bed (I am sure it is something that would be appreciated). Nothing would kill the mood like a well worn and baggy pyjama suit with dodgy lapels.
In my opinion the biggest reason men might want fashionable nightwear is for lounging around the house (and I don’t mean hanging around in a smoking jacket with a pipe). We all like to lounge around the house in the evening and particularly at the weekends.
There is something very indulgent about wearing your pyjamas/nightwear on a Sunday morning whilst reading the papers over a pot of coffee. Whether you are surrounded by your family, or hanging out on your own, its nice to wear something comfortable that fits well and looks good.
We wear stylish clothes not only for the benefit of others, but for our own sense of satisfaction and enjoyment. Although fewer people will see us in our nightwear, it can still make us feel good. Fashionable men’s nghtwear provides a flattering cut which follows the contour of a man’s body for a more comfortable fit. This feeling of comfort and self confidence at night-time can have a positive effect on our sleep, which for me is the most convincing reason to purchase quality nightwear.
Diesel, Ted Baker, Calvin Klein, Emporio Armani all offer fashionable men’s nightwear because they understand that men want to look and feel good all the time. As explained, it’s nice to look good for your partner in bed and so unsurprisingly many women buy trendy nightwear for their spouse. There are very few romantic gifts for men, and so it makes a very popular gift for occasions like Valentines Day and birthday’s.
